Drivers confused by signs at East Tremont intersection

Drivers traveling through an East Tremont intersection are making an illegal turn but most don't know that they're breaking the law.

Drivers say they are confused by a sign on East Tremont Avenue and 177th Street that reads yield to pedestrians. Many also say they think the traffic light is meant for drivers turning at the next street.

The Department of Tranportation says the turn precedes the light so drivers should follow the signs. The agency will investigate whether more signs are needed to make travel safer.
